Experience

Logan Drew represents both plaintiffs and defendants in patent infringement matters and other contractual disputes relating to clients’ IP assets.  He has represented clients through every stage of litigation, including pre-suit investigation, initiation of lawsuits, fact and expert discovery, claim construction, summary judgment, and trial. 

Through various litigation matters and matters before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, Mr. Drew has diverse experience in numerous technical fields, including semiconductor fabrication techniques and process control, integrated circuit design, layout, and power and thermal management, graphics processing, graphical user interface (GUI), mobile device technology, e-commerce, consumer electronics, including smart televisions and DVD and Blu-ray technology, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Mr. Drew has represented clients in litigation matters in numerous jurisdictions across the country, including the Eastern District of Texas, the Northern District of California, the District of Delaware, the Northern District of Illinois, the District of Minnesota, the Western District of Wisconsin, the Southern District of New York, and the District of New Jersey.

Represented Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) against LG Electronics, Inc., et al., in patent infringement litigation venued in the Northern District of California.  The case involved AMD’s assertion of nine patents relating to integrated circuit power and thermal management, computer memory architecture, graphics processing (GPU) technology, and graphical user interfaces for consumer electronics devices.  LG asserted four counterclaim patents in related technological areas.  After approximately two years of active litigation, the parties resolved the matter through mediation after claim construction.  Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., et al. v. LG Electronics, Inc., et al., No. 3:14-cv-01012-SI (N.D. Cal.)

Represented Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) in defensive patent litigation against Power Management Solutions in the District of Delaware.  The asserted patent involved technology for gating power applied to integrated circuits, including microprocessors and graphics processors.  Following claim construction, the plaintiff agreed to a final judgment of non-infringement, and the plaintiff appealed the claim construction to the Federal Circuit.  The Federal Circuit affirmed the judgment of non-infringement, without opinion, within a week of the appellate oral argument.

Represented Omniplanar, Inc., a subsidiary of Honeywell International Inc., against Tohken Co., Ltd. in a contractual dispute venued in the District of New Jersey.  The dispute centered around royalty payments for the use of Omniplanar’s barcode-scanning software.  The parties settled the matter before significant discovery was necessary.  Omniplanar, Inc. v. Tohken Co., Ltd., et al., No. 1:11-cv-05671 (JHR/AMD) (D.N.J.)

Represented Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) against Silicon Graphics, Inc. in patent infringement litigation venued in the Western District of Wisconsin.  The case involved patents relating to graphics processing technology.  On appeal, after AMD sustained two-thirds of its non-infringement victory, the case was remanded by the Federal Circuit on issues relating to five claims of one remaining patent-in-suit.  The parties resolved the case shortly before trial.  Silicon Graphics, Inc./Graphics Properties Holdings, Inc. v. ATI Technologies, Inc. and Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., No. 3:06-cv-00611 (BBC) (W.D. Wisc.)

Represented Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) against Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. in patent infringement litigation venued in the Northern District of California.  The case involved AMD’s assertion of seven patents relating to semiconductor fabrication technology, memory and microprocessor design and architecture, and graphical user interfaces for consumer electronics devices.  Samsung asserted six counterclaim patents in related technological areas.  After nearly three years of litigation and two rounds of mediation, the parties resolved the matter shortly before trial, at the close of expert discovery and summary judgment briefing.  Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., et al. v. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., et al., No. 3:08-cv-00986-SI (N.D. Cal.)
